Looking to Help?

W&L Law's greatest career resource is its alumni. Here are just a few ways you can get involved:

Recruit W&L Lawyers. If you are hiring for summer or for an entry-level position, you can recruit

  • By interviewing on campus or collecting application materials (register using the SCORE for Employers button). 
  • At one of our Virtual Interview Programs.
  • If you'd be interested in hosting a 3L extern during the academic year, we'd be happy to facilitate that as well.

Volunteer to be a Mentor, or to Conduct Mock Interviews. Students invariably benefit from the advice of a seasoned professional on a range of career matters. If you'd rather provide specific assistance, or help students prepare for interviews by offering candid feedback and advice let us know.

Share Your Perspective. We sponsor panel discussions and presentations on a variety of practice areas and career-related issues. If you would like to speak with students about your practice area or your career path, we can arrange Zoom or video conference presentations as well as in-person programs.

For information about any of these options, email LawCareer@wlu.edu or call 540.458.8535.
